promised he was going to work hard for us. george bush promised that in 2004 over and over again and it was a fiasco. people understand the president's going to work hard. but he should have said, i want a fairer america, an america where everyone benefits at same time. we can do it, folks, he should have been upbeat and passionate. >> very good point about the dangers of incumbency. when you're an incumbent, and particularly when you're an incumbent president of the united states, people don't challenge you. if you start running your hands through the mashed potatoes at the dinner table, everybody else starts running their hands through the mashed potatoes. nobody challenges you. >> i don't think obama's unaccustomed to people opposing him in such a way because of the assault upon him in public, but i do think there's some comforts that come from having the stage to yourself and then having to share that stage with somebody else who is as vigorous in defensive in his ideal in opposition to your. >> he doesn't like sharing the stage with joe biden. >> i don't know about that. >> you rea

the '90s boom and george w. bush cut taxes and there were predictions of prosperity and instead we had r anhecr.t decade since wor none of this is to say that tax cuts cause economic problems or tax increases lead to prosperity. i don't know anyone who seriously makes that argument. the question is, how important are tax cuts to economic growth? and i don't knowow you look at recent history and say that relatively modest changes in the top marginal tax rate is the main force driving the american economy. >> yet, it is the sort of magical ball, theball, once you slash taxes for top income earners everything is going to magically right lf t i -os thought it was an interesting -- that sound we played from romney, kind of backing away from his announcement that everybody's tax res are going to go down. it is, i think, an atput math mat kaly impossible. to balance the budget and cut rates you have to close loopholes on middle income earnings which means their taxes go up. >> it's responsive to the effective line in the speech about take two tax cuts and cal er p40 years the hasi republican

narrowly to george w. bush in that state, the president has a couple huge advantages we're seeing in the ten-point game, one is the auto bailout. there is no state besides michigan be impacted more positively by the auto bailout than ohio. 82 out of 88 counties have an auto parts supplier in them that's felt a direct effect of the bailout. part of why the economy is doing better there. it's enough to move the needle. also the case that anti-union backlash in the industrial midwest and wisconsin has motivated organized labor in ohio in a way, the case always for democrats ohio is the place where organized labor has the most impact. this year motivating them more so. all that adds up to it's been an uphill climb for mitt romney, ten points is probably not what that margin will be on election day, but it's -- it is a state that's very hard to figure out a map for mitt romney to win. possible but not -- very hard. almost kind of fantastical, ha his naer to. >> so many other things about mitt romney -- >> it's just very, very hard. >> kurt andersen a son of the midwest is. >> i am. >> and joh

or shape shift into a nonhuman form. president george w. bush. >> if the republicans want to defend the bush administration's response to katrina i'm sure the president would give them his time during the debate. >> as long as we're talking about troublesome videos this clip of congressman paul ryan weighing in on the makers and the takers rose to the surface last night as well. >> before too long we could become a society we were never ever intended to be. we could become a society where the net majority of americans are takers not makers. 70% of americans get more benefits from the federal government in dollar value than they pay back in taxes. so you could argue that we're already passed that tipping point. the good news is, survey after survey, poll after poll, still shows that we are a center right 70/30 country. 70% of americans want the american dream. they believe in the american idea. only 30% want the welfare state. >> which video is more sensat n sensational? more of a game-changing contest modifier. joining us from the site of tonight's debate in denver is the man who kn

dream program is okay. they look back at the last several elections and george w. bush arguably won his two elections with that extra 10% of latinos that he got because that's 1%, 2% of the vote. and those were very close races. similarly with women, i mean if romney does as badly among women in this election as these polls say, it will break a record. i mean we've seen gender gaps of 8, 10, 11% in the last several elections between democrats and republicans, but -- >> 16. >> if it's in the teens that will be a new record. >> and i think karen, we were talking about this during the break, ann romney going out there and saying i love you women. it's not all ann romney's job but such a simplistic strategy with women and then look at as ron brown stein reports a micro targeted strategy to speak to women on issues not just the 47% stuff but the reproductive stuff, speaks to women's paychecks, speaks to their pocketbooks. >> the thing we talk about, months and months ago that the republicans did not understand in terms of this language ability the war on women for women it's not just about e
